Ministry in Mexico- Tim and Barbara Lee Glessner

2015-06-26 - Glessner

Tim & Barbara Lee Glessner are planting a church in a difficult area of Puebla, Mexico.  They write about a young man coming to services., “’E’ is a young man who started attending church and accepted Christ this year. It has been a joy to watch him grow in commitment even in ‘persecution’ as he is catching flak both at work and from family for his new faith. We baptized him and give thanks for the growth in his life.”

Ministry in the Universities- Bob and Susie Lawton

2015-06-19 - Lawton

This photo of the cross by Lake Ontario was sent to Bob & Susie Lawton, who minister to Asian scholars, researchers and students at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD.

The Lawtons were on an outing with the researchers.  Susie breathed a prayer as she boarded the bus for the one-hour trip, “Lord where should I sit?  Please give ‘God’ conversations.”  Her prayers were answered.  While sharing the Gospel with interested seekers, one responded, “I have never heard this before.” It’s God’s work to give spiritual life.  Please pray for these and others like them to come to true faith in Christ.

Counseling in Uganda- Prince and Heidi Sabena

sabenakampala

R. is one of the girls who got involved in the biblical counseling program that Prince & Heidi Sabena offered in Kampala, Uganda. Although she was raised in a church, she did not know Christ. God used the counseling classes and her relationship with Heidi and other students in our class to cause her to realize her need for salvation. She now acknowledges Christ as Savior and Lord and is growing in her knowledge and love for God.

Alex is a fairly new Christian whom Prince helped to ground in the Word.  He is also a lawyer…and lawyers in Uganda are so often focused on the money.  A husband came to Alex seeking a divorce because the wife does not submit to him.  The wife does not want a divorce.  Alex sought out a biblical counselor for her.

Prince & Heidi write, “This blessed our hearts so much to hear of a lawyer in Uganda who not only cares about his wallet but also genuinely cares for the greater need of his client’s heart.  We are thrilled that he would help this hurting woman legally but also point her to another woman who could help her know Jesus as she walks through this journey.”
